Dido "Give You Up" (Track Review)
Oscar Rendon | St. Louis, MO | January 29th, 2019
Dido has released her latest single from her first album in 6 years ‘Still On My Mind’ out on March 8th, 2019. The multi-million selling singer has also announced her first tour in 15 (fifteen!) years, where she will play songs from the new album alongside her classic megahits such as "Thank You," "Here With Me," "White Flag" and "Life For Rent."
The World tour, of 27 dates, commences in Europe on May 5th in Prague, with London’s Roundhouse on May 30th which will be followed by a North America tour in June. More info on the tour here.
‘Still On My Mind’ is Dido’s 5th studio album and was written and recorded in England, a result of the fruitful and incredibly natural production/songwriting partnership with her long term collaborator and brother (Faithless founder) Rollo.
“Give You Up” starts slow and with a haunting vocal. Dido really builds the tone of the song as it begins with a somber tone into an uplifting track. The keys/piano keep the track on beat and dictates the pace of the chorus. The song is a beautiful ballad with nothing but strong vocals and a simple beat. Dido reminds us why she’s one of the best vocalist in recent years.
Dido is on tour this summer in the U.S. and you can catch her at these cities.
